Download: Giraf diary
« Back to downloads

Marshall Rosenberg said about this process: “What I do on a daily basis to remember how I can be most alive and present in experiencing life is to write each day in my Giraffe diary.” He also talked about “un-sneaky bragging.” He said “I remember the power I have and how good this feels. I celebrate this!” With this he meant that there are things we can be proud and talk about without it resulting in bragging. We speak very little about our qualities apart from in a job interview. When we or others are not conscious of our qualities it can become an obstacle to making full use of them. When we learn to name and own the qualities we have our self-esteem will grow and it becomes easier to recognize and appreciate the positive qualities in others.
